My husband deployed earlier this year, and until the day he deployed we had the insurance through his work as our Primary and Tricare as our secondary. Well the day he deployed we switched over to just Tricare because we couldnt afford the out of pocket at that point to keep the other insurance. We found out I was pregnant in late September, and we officially got me in the DEERS system in late November.
My question is, will Tricare cover all of my pregnancy expenses or will we be stuck with a huge bill? My husband is in the Army Reserve so the only time we have tricare is when he deploys and since this is his first deployment we just are not sure how all this works. And the closests office to talk to anyone about tricare is over 2 hours away and since im on travel restriction due to swelling and bp issues its impossible for me to travel there to ask them questions, and they dont like answer them over the phone for security reasons.
So would any of you ladies know if tricare will cover the expenses we have from this pregnancy or will we be stuck with a huge out of pocket on all of this?
